spending, which is the main driver of our deficits, we can arrive at a package that gets this thing done. i'm happy to have that conversation. what i will not do is to have that negotiation with a gun at the head of the american people. the threat that unless we get our way, unless you gut medicare or medicaid, or, you know, otherwise slash things that the american people don't believe should be slashed, that we're going to threaten to wreck the entire economy. that is not how, historically, this has been done. that's not how we're going to do it this time. [ inaudible question ] chuck, what i'm saying to you is that there is no simpler solution, no ready, credible solution other than congress either give me the authority to raise the debt ceiling or exercise the responsibility that they have kept for themselves and raise the debt ceiling. because this is about paying your bills. everybody here understands this. i mean, this is not a complicated concept. you don't go out to dinner and then, you know, eat all you want, and then leave without paying the check. and if you do, you're breaking t

they have to really assert a move toward deficit reduction? >> you know, in my mind they actually missed the best chance they had, which was the expiration of the bush tax cuts, which was really the best chance for both sides. if there was ever a point where a grand bargain was possible, it would have been i think the republicans accepting rolling back more of that tax cut than we did in return for acquiring democrats to deal with the very real long-term challenge of entitlements. we did not take advantage of that. we had a minimalist deal that confirms 82% of bush tax cuts, possibly the worst possible outcome and no spending cuts, probably the worst possible outcome in the long term from a deficit perspective. now i think the history is this is not a powerful mechanism. in the end it's a doomsday device you cannot use. you go back to the midninety with bill clinton and the republican congress, look at 2011. i think in the end they will decide they cannot use this measure and they seem to be heading that way this week in their house republican retreat. >> ian bremer is with us. he's the

, but we should find out within days. do you think there is a deficit of coverage there? >> no, i think there is a surfeit of coverage. there is, it has been on the front page every single day that this working group has been around. it's on television all the time. there's no bigger issue in america right now. >> i disagree respectfully because when you look at what's getting attention. david gregory bringing an empty clip on "meet the press." alex jones on to cnn and newspapers publishing the addresses of gun owners in the front page. so, that's what's getting attention. i read "the post" and read those stories and they're all around in the press, but ne'er not getting attention because it's the circus on the television. >> those stories are part of the larger story. >> true. >> they should be the larger story. >> it raises the attention of the larger issue, as well. >> we're going to come back to some of those very incidents that you mentioned, robert. let me come back to keli on this issue. went basically hay wire over vice president biden saying the possibility of executive orders.

deficit reduction plan. understand that fitch is not just looking for an 11th hour debt ceiling deal that sets the table for another mini crisis down the road. the federal government hit the debt limit as you know on december 31st. the treasury is using so-called extraordinary measures to pay its bills through mid-february or early march. now, fitch predicts washington will extend the debt ceiling despite the current war of words between president obama and republicans in congress. what happens if we get downgraded? it happened before. remember 2011, when standard & poor's did it. that hit markets and the wider economy hard, but it didn't cause interest rates to increase. this time could be different, however, because the rest of the world is getting its act together. even successful businesses like ford are worried. here's what ceo alan mulally told me today. >> i think the most important thing to your point is that we come together around a solution that allows us to live within our means, to reduce our budget deficits, and also to deal with our trade deficits, and create an enviro

of what i believe to he faces. reforming immigration, reducing the deficit gun control, averting climate change, maybe iran's nuclear program. certainly you get a sense it's going to be mainly domestic. certainly if you're looking at the tick box in the first four years, i would say killing bin laden, killing gadhafi, the american help to the arab spring, although it's not without difficulty, pulling troops in iraq and setting a timetable for afghanistan, these have all been a seen that president obama would rather focus on domestic issues rather than foreign issues. >> i think that's true. and i think you see that when he takes the bully pulpit. he doesn't go out and speak well. they' had several blunders on foreign policy issues. the most recent one is a failure for america to retaliate in some meaningful or symbolic way on the death of an american ambassador in benghazi. >> interesting point. the george bush administration would have piled in there, blown things to pieces and exacted terrible retribution. that's the american way for a long time. is that the right way? would that creat

think than getting the deficits under control. >> one thing i will say four years ago before his first inauguration, he went to the waup editorial meeting and he talked a good game. he knows you need to put this country on a sustainable path not just for the economy but also just for dealing with our lock-term debt and american competitiveness. does he use his leverage like clinton did with welfare reform to try to come up with an acceptable solution on this key issue because we're confronting the debt, the republicans in congress are focused on it. it's going to be an area where he will have some maneuverability in the next two years. >> does he have that leverage? on the one hand he's got a republican base that says give us those big entitlement changes or we won't give you anything but he's got a democratic party that's already going to think ahead to the midterm elections. you have new voices. senator elizabeth warren of massachusetts said i will not cut medicare. >> and chuck schumer said today that the senate would come up with its own budget. remember, the republicans chal elect

talking about deficit, government spending 1520 years ago when nobody was that much focused on it. they are now. here's a chance for you to take what you learned on the way up, what you learned on the way down, what you learned in congress before, what you learned in the governorship and apply it to what is really the debate of our time. >> you will remember his governorship, which was riddled with that story where he admitted an affair with a woman from argentina back in 2009. >>> look at this, unless you're a little claustrophobic. this oregon woman spent nearly four hours trapped in an eight-inch space between an apartment building and a 20-foot wall. this happened early wednesday morning in downtown portland. apparently she fell from a second floor smoking area and getting her out was not easy. firefighters had to cut through a section of wall and used air bags to widen the space. lieutenant rich chapman is the firefighter who pulled that woman out. >> we were assuring her we were doing everything to get her out. we weren't going home without her. that was it. we used basicall
